I am getting ready to build my first rod. I am waiting for the guides and then I'm gonna start putting it together. I almost bought the same blank (11' 3wt) but I chose to go for a 10' 3wt blank (by F E Chase). The blank by itself feels like a true fast action, but I don't know how it will work once all the guides , thread, and epoxy will weight it. I will use it for euro-nymphing. The Roger blanks seemed too inexpensive, and I was afraid that they are not "crisp" enough to be a decent short line nymphing rod.
Can you describe the feel/action of your rod and what are you using it for? I don't want to hijack the thread so if you feel so, shoot me a PM. It might be my next project.
